Sinn Fein Cllr Pa Daly says the General Election count should be held in Tralee which is the county town. He believes it would benefit the majority of candidates and businesses if a town centre location is selected: [audio_player src=”http://media.radiokerry.ie/mediamanager/embed/audio/51491/medium/”] County Registrar Padraig Burke says the count centre location will be based on the most suitable venue in Kerry. However, Independent Cllr Johnny Healy-Rae says locations such as Killarney Sports and Leisure Centre are not suitable for election counts due to a lack of facilities.
